Thief 4 Official
Eidos Montreal kicks off development; official website up.
Eidos today lifted the veil over their secret project confirming, as many had expected, the development of the fourth installment in the popular Thief series.
“We’re in the early development stages for Thief 4, but this is an incredibly ambitious and exciting project for Eidos,” said Stéphane D’Astous, General Manager at Eidos-Montréal. “While it’s too early for us to offer any specific game details, right now we are focused on recruiting the very best talent to join the core team at the studio and help us make what we believe will be one of the most exciting games on the market.”
The official Thief 4 web site is up but is under construction with only a link to the official discussion forum available.
The announcement may come off as bittersweet for fans expecting the game to release by next year. If the job openings are anything to do go by, the development of the game has just begun and the company is still to hire a large chunk of the development team. So, it could be a good 2-3 years before the game is readied to go retail.
But let’s take rejoice in the fact that it is indeed in development. We expect to see more information and media available over the coming months.
